The data set includes 3 files that contain abundance data for terrestrial gastropods along an elevational gradient within the Sonadora River watershed. Two files (1 and 2) contain data from the same transect but differ in the year during which they were collected (2007 and 2008). The third file (3) contains data from a separate elevational transect (sites were located at the same elevation as in files 1 and 2) in palm dominated forest within the same watershed that was collected during the same time period in 2008 as data from file 2. Note: Plots at 250 m of elevation were not sampled in 2008 on either transect and a plot at elevation 750 m in the palm transect was never sampled.
